Trendology: Starkers Corsetry by Dianna DiNoble 2014

My 5th year at |FAT| also marks the 5th time for me to see Dianna DiNoble's show. Once again, this collection wows me in the most pleasant way.

For this year, the collection has only 2 main colours: black and white. It continues to have this gothic vibe, and the armour inspired pieces are absolutely stunning. The best part of this collection is the 3D prints, which the 3D print butterflies wedding gown is definitely the highlight of day 1 at |FAT|.

I am pretty sure Dianna will push the envelope again next year. What will that be? We will know in 1 year.

Trendology: Puma x Mihara Yasuhiro Black White My-72 Shoes

When I was in Hong Kong this early April, I had the chance to see this pair of sneakers in real life. Honestly, it has been haunting me ever since.

This pair of sneakers is a collaboration between Puma and Mihara Yasuhiro. It looks like a dress shoes, but with a very interesting twist! If you are born in the 80s, you should remember the Puma disc lace system (first introduced in 1991), which was a big innovation at that time. This dress shoes + disc lace system combination is refreshing and when I saw it in real life, it was not tacky at all.

Currently, there is only one size left on Oki-ni. You might want to get it before it is all gone!

Ray of Inspirology: Elizabeth Olsen by Hunter & Gatti

The Olsen Twins are rarely on my radar, but her little sister, Elizabeth Olsen, is a totally different case. She is a beautiful actress and a great model as well. In the latest issue of Flant, she is captured by Hunter & Gatti.

Elizabeth looks amazing in this series. Some of the clothes she has worn in this shoot include Prada, Louis Vuitton, Valentino and Christopher Kane. The vibe is dark, which really fits her Scarlet Witch image (she is starring in Avengers: Age of Ultron). Of course, the smoke effect is giving an edge to this whole series. To me, this is a perfect editorial!
